PSG youth team to field ridiculous 2-7-2 formation with their keeper in midfield!

first_imgAdvertisement b0beNBA Finals | Brooklyn Vs5j8qhWingsuit rodeo📽Sindre Eqdc1p6p( IG: @_aubreyfisher @imraino ) 5btWould you ever consider trying this?😱t8h13eCan your students do this? 🌚mqRoller skating! Powered by Firework (Photo Courtesy: Goal)Advertisement Former Italian player and current PSG U-19 team coach Thiago Motta has revealed in a  brilliant interview that he wants to revolutionise the game by using a “short” team who “control the game with high pressure and a lot of movement with and without the ball.”Advertisement Motta’s idea sees him field a side with a 2-7-2 formation. The goalkeeper is seen to play in the midfield and the side contains only two center backs. In an interview with Italian outlet Gazzetta dello Sport, the former PSG midfielder explained his tactic.“My idea it to play offensively. A short team that controls the game, high pressure and a lot of movement with and without the ball,” he said.Advertisement “I want the player that has the ball to always have three or four solutions and two teammates close by to help. The difficulty in football is, often to do things simply but to control the base, pass and get free.“I don’t like the numbers of the field because they trick you. You can be super offensive with a 5-3-2 and defensive in a 4-3-3.“Depending on the quality of the guys. I had a game a while ago where the two full-backs ended up playing as the 9 and 10. But that doesn’t mean I don’t like people like Samuel and Chiellini, born defenders.”Later he went on to say that the goal keeper was seen as the first attacker and who would fit in within the midfield.“No, the goalkeeper counts as one of the midfield seven. For me, the attacker is the first defender and the goalkeeper is the first attacker. The goalkeeper starts the play, with his feet and the attackers are the first to put pressure to recover the ball.”With his sights clearly set on managing the PSG main team one day, it will be interesting to see whether this offensive formation takes him towards his desired goals.Also Read:Ex Real Madrid coach Julen Lopetegui expresses interest in US National team job…but gets overlooked Advertisementlast_img read more

Fulham’s Davis could face jail after missing Singapore enlistment

first_imgSingapore’s first football player signed to the English Premier League has missed his compulsory military service and now faces charges that carry up to three years in jail, the city-state’s defence ministry said on Monday.Singapore’s refusal to allow Ben Davis, 18, to defer his national service sparked a debate last year over whether the country’s rigid conscription law is stifling its youth from pursuing their dreams.Davis signed a two-year contract with London club Fulham to become the first player from the Southeast Asian nation to join an English top-flight club.“Mr Benjamin Davis is a National Service (NS) defaulter. He failed to report for NS as required. He is also staying overseas without a valid Exit Permit,” the ministry of defence said in a statement posted on its website.The ministry said Davis has committed offences under the Enlistment Act, and if convicted could be fined up to S$10,000 and/or imprisoned for up to three years.His father, Harvey Davis, who has previously spoken on his behalf, could not be immediately reached for comment.Only a handful of people have met the criteria for long-term deferment from military service, including swimmer Joseph Schooling, who won Singapore’s first ever Olympic gold medal, in the 100 metres butterfly, at the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Games.last_img read more

No split at JAAA, says Dr Blake

first_imgPresident of the Jamaica Athletics Administrative Association (JAAA) Dr Warren Blake has insisted that there is no split within his organisation after he and his general secretary, Garth Gayle, were named on opposite slates for the Jamaica Olympic Association (JOA) presidential race. Blake is going up for the post of first vice-president on the slate of Vishu Tolan, the former president of the Jamaica Badminton Association, while Gayle is chasing the post of second vice-president on the slate of the JOA’s current secretary general, Christopher Samuda. Blake told The Gleaner on Wednesday that there is no rift within his organisation and he has no problem with Gayle’s decision to run on Samuda’s slate. ‘NO JAAA DIVISION’ “There is really no division in the JAAA. It is important that the JAAA is represented on the JOA because without the JAAA, there would not be a JOA,” said Blake. “The last four years, the JAAA has not been represented on the JOA and we have to seek to correct this anomaly going forward,” he added. The elections are set to take place at the JOA’s office on Cunningham Avenue in Kingston on June 27 with 36 sporting associations holding one vote for each position. Both presidential candidates are looking to replace Mike Fennell, who is not seeking re-election, bringing to an end an unbroken 40-year reign at the helm of Jamaica’s Olympic movement.last_img read more

Tactically disciplined Thika puncture Mathare’s title drive

first_imgIt would be different to tell, from the first half that it is Thika who are lower on the table compared to Mathare as the latter did not have a shot on target in the entire opening 45 minutes.Thika United head coach James Nandwa had tweaked up his line-up, in a bid to shut out the ball-playing nature of Francis Kimanzi’s Mathare.Skipper Dennis Odhiambo had been pushed up to defensive midfield, partnering the combative Michael Luvutsi while Sammy Mejja, who has been on and off injury for the last two seasons, was drafted in at left back, with Vincent Omumbo getting back to the team partnering Collins Okumu in defense.Kimanzi had made only one change to his team, bringing in Alphonce Ndonye into midfield, replacing Whyvonne Isuza.Mukangula, who had been impressive in the opening exchanges, was the first to knock on the door with a well taken shot from the right which went straight into Wycliffe Kasaya’s arms.Thika’s tactical discipline was apt ensuring they shut out all the spaces, neutralizing the effect of the deadly Eric Johannah who at times was forced to drop deep into his own half in search of the ball.Thika had another chance in the 21st minute when Joel Tatah went past Bernard Otieno with a little nutmeg on the left but his ambitious shot from distance didn’t do much to trouble Kasaya.Nandwa’s men had two chances back-to- back from a freekick 20 yards out in the 31st and 33rd minutes, but both went begging.First, a training ground routine ended up in Mejja hitting it straight to the wall but the execution was better in the second, Vincent Omumbo’s effort rising a meter above the crossbar.On the other end, Mathare had a free-kick of their own, but Johannah was wasteful hitting the ball up high.-Second half-Thika United’s Michael Mutinda vies for the ball with Mathare United’s Daniel Mwaura. PHOTO/COURTESYIn the second half, Kimanzi seemed to have talked some sense into his side as they came better, playing with more purpose with Ndonye the first to show the side’s intent with a low shot that however went straight into Hamuza Muwonge’s arms.But Thika were not cowed as they kept their rhythm up. They came close on the hour mark with Omumbo’s wonderfully struck freekick being well tipped over the bar by Kasaya as it destined for the top right corner.Kimanzi sought to add some punch into his forward line, pulling out Chris Oduor for Obadiah Ndege.However, Thika still retained their pressure and they came close again in the 75th minute with Bernard Otieno making a superb clearance from a Chibueze cross as Mukangula lurked at the far post waiting to tap in.But that was just a sign of good things to come. Three minutes later, Chibueze opened the scores with a dink over Kasaya from a tight angle after racing onto the ball with the Mathare backline assuming the ball would roll off.Two minutes later, another defensive mishap gave Thika a second goal when Mukangula raced past Robinson Kamura and George ‘Wise’ Owino to volley the ball home past Kasaya.Kimanzi reacted immediately, throwing caution to the wind by pulling out right-back Otieno for youngster Cliff Nyakeya while Duke Abuya came on for Daniel Mwaura.Thika threw everything in attack and Johannah came close with a shot from distance but Muwonge punched the ball out for a corner.Thika managed to hold on with Nandwa bringing in defensive midfielder Samwel Mwanje for Mukangula, a clear bid to secure the win.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Thika United’s Eugene Mukangula attempts to shoot past Mathare United defender Robinson Kamura.

Man United reject loan move for full-back but will sell him in the summer

first_imgRoma have been told Manchester United defender Matteo Darmian will not be leaving until the summer after having a loan offer rejected.The Italian club have set their sights on signing the full-back this month as left-back Emerson Palmieri looks set to join Chelsea.But, according to Gazzetta dello Sport, United have rejected Roma’s proposal to land Darmian on loan this month.The Premier League giants are unwilling to let the defender leave as they have limited time to bring in a replacement.Manchester United will, however, consider offers for the Italy international in the summer.Roma are expected to return for Darmian then, but they will most likely be joined by Serie A champions Juventus too.

Mississippi Couple Arrested in Clark State Forest with Drugs, Child

first_imgThe couple was arrested on charges including neglect of a dependent, possession of methamphetamine, maintaining a common nuisance, and possession of paraphernalia. The young girl was placed in temporary custody with the Indiana Department of Child Services.Conservation officers will routinely patrol the state’s parks and properties to ensure safety, but encourage citizens to also report suspicious activity to Indiana DNR’s central dispatch at 812-837-9536. A Mississippi couple is facing charges after conservation officers found them smoking meth with a child in their vehicle.Bradley Gordon, 52, and 31-year-old Sheila Gordon of Gulfport, Mississippi were found in a vehicle parked near a shelter house at the Clark State Forest.

Designing the future at LYIT

first_imgConor Smyth is a 27-year-old Monaghan native who arrived at LYIT by chance – but, after graduating with a Bachelor of Arts (Hons) in Visual Communication and Graphic Design, is now working with the V7 web agency in Dublin as well as boasting a host of freelance clients.Conor’s journey to LYIT came through a chance session with a guidance counsellor which he says ‘helped shape my future’.“I was originally in Dublin studying product design, but I dropped out and then reached out to a guidance counsellor, who really knew her business and she pointed me in the direction of graphic design,” Conor told Donegal Daily. “I never looked back. It was a leap of faith and it paid off, so I guess you could say my career path was also a stroke of luck. LYIT had the best course in the country on paper that didn’t require a portfolio (I had completed LC Art), so that’s how I ended up there. I firmly believe the course is as good as any in the country.”Conor explained how he ‘struggled’ initially with ‘thinking outside the box’, but he soon found his feet.He said: “At LYIT we were challenged every day with briefs that forced you to think a little differently. You were rewarded by handing in an assignment that pushed boundaries, not necessarily the most technically sound projects all the time, but the ones that made people go: ‘that’s pretty smart or different’. As students the lectures all made this clear to us, so from the get go we were being grooved unknowingly.”“Every brand, every illustration, every logo and so on, should tell a story, and it’s our job to tell that story, to visualise it in an artistic form.” Conor graduated from LYIT with a distinction and won an award for Best Student in the Department of Design and Creative Media.He said: “Considering I never thought of myself as a creative person and as I hadn’t really accomplished much of value in life up until that, it was a huge deal for me. I felt excited about the future for the first time in my life.“I never expected much from myself, so I never stressed too much. It wasn’t until year 3 that I realised I could do this and do it well, so I put the head down and worked as hard as I could with a little play and it paid off.”The course has opened many doors for Conor. After graduating from LYIT, he worked with Ph7 in Monaghan for eight months and moved onto Neworld Associates.He said: “I learned an awful lot about the industry and design in general, I met some great designers and it was a great place to get start. I can’t put into words how much I learned. “I worked on quite a bit of branding. I kept myself going with some freelance work on the side and that’s what led me to my current position with V7. It was a bit of a risk considering I had only been in the industry two years. “Once I changed studios the owner started his own distillery, so for most of the last 9 months I’ve been working on branding, packaging, illustration and web for his new gin and whiskey products. “It’s not often one person gets full control over jobs like that and especially with such little experience, so I consider myself very lucky. Once I left Neworld I was thrown into the deep end but it was the best thing for me.”Conor has illustrated book covers and privately commissioned posters as well as working on branding and packaging for US-based clients. He holds his time at LYIT in high regard for the opportunities it has given him – and recommends it for any budding designers.Conor indicated “If you are any way creative I would recommend it and it’s so good I would recommend it even if you’re not creative. I always thought of myself as more technical, a perfectionist, and that’s why I feel I produce good design; I obsess over it. “There are many specialised areas of design. The ability to think differently more than anything is important in this industry and the course was focused on that more than teaching you the technical programmes.”The closing date for CAO applications is on 1st February, 2017, at 5.15pm.
